Flight Over Lithuania or 510 Seconds of Silence

  • Lithuania

"Flight over Lithuania" is a legendary film by A. Stonys and A. Matelis, which won honors as No. 4 of the Top 10 at the international exhibition EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany as one of the best films, demonstrated at the exhibition.

The film features an incredibly low angel's flight over the dunes of Nida, Trakai castle, the lakes of Aukstaitija (Highlands), the roofs of the Old Town of Vilnius and the fantastically beautiful church steeples. It's like a mystical gliding just above the treetops, meadows covered by early morning mist, as well as the narrow streets of Vilnius.

The film has combined a real sense of flying, modern technologies and classic poetic documentary. When filming "Flight over Lithuania" a very sophisticated shooting technique was applied, and probably for the first time in cinema history, a complex new-generation sound system was used, where sound is transmitted not only in a usual Dolby surround, but also from the above and below.
